Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt: September 12-19, 2020

With many summer activities being restricted this year due to COVID-19, the Princeton Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors are hosting a fun, safe, and local community event.

Participants will have one week to navigate through the 35 clues directing you to local businesses.  This is a family friendly summer activity to be enjoyed by both adults and children.

  • Cost: $25 per team (non-refundable).  Proceeds benefitting the Building Improvement Grant program.
  • Must have at least 1 adult over 18 on the team.
  • Maximum of 8 people per team.  Exception will be made if family size larger than 8.

    • Costumes are encouraged, but not required.
    • Prize for best team costume will be awarded.

  • Social distancing needs to be practiced.

Clue kits will be available for pickup from 9am-12pm on Saturday, September 12th at the Prouty Building, 435 S Main in Princeton IL.

To solve the clue, you must first decipher it. Then drive to that business and look for a sign displayed in their window/door that has the Chamber logo along with a picture or phrase.  You must describe that picture on your clue answer sheet.

Note: There are two out of town businesses that have been flagged on your answer sheet. You can find your answer on their website.

You have 1 week to accomplish this. We want this to be a fun, non-stressful event.

Your completed clue answer sheet can be mailed to the chamber office at 435 S Main St, Princeton IL   OR dropped off at the chamber office lobby drop box BY NOON on Saturday, September 19th. Chamber hours are Monday through Friday 8:30-4.

Teams that have correctly answered all the clues will be placed in the drawing for prizes. Winners will be announced on Monday, September 21st.
